Question Grinnell College

Is it a community college or a private 4 year?

Just wondering, still going to go to ISU anyways ;)

I'm 99% sure it's a private college. Check out the cost of housing around the college It's insane. On the other side of town the same houses go for half the price.<exaggeration

There is a great site if you want any info on any college/university (public & private) in the US: www.collegeboard.com floywall888 is right, it is a private 4 year college.

Have to have at least a 4.0 to get in...j/k... VERY tough to be accepted. If you have a degree from Grinnell, you have something. Pick of the picks, as far as jobs go....guess

Holy cats! THAT was weird....must've hit Submit by mistake, and ERROR came up...must wait 25 secs. between posts.! (Better pull the keyboard out further.)

Anyway, as I was starting to say....guess I should call them careers, not jobs. . . . . ....Hardly worth that exercise!

Grinnell is an exceptional school. One of the best private liberal arts schools in the US. It's also got an endowment on par with Harvard. That being said, it's very difficult to get in to. That will explain why you see so many east coast license plates in Grinnell.
